Laid-back atmosphere with lots of fun and intersting people
Pizza Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – March 17, 2016
I've worked for this particular store for six years. I love all the different types of people I get to associate with on a daily basis; people of different ages, genders, ethnic backgrounds and personal beliefs. I've met three of my closest friends working for Pizza Hut. The money is good hourly (around $18/hour with tips) but full-time hours are not available; typically 25-35 hours/week depending on the time of year, and vehicle maintenance and cost of fuel are a big drain (30,000 miles/year on the job).
My favorite part of the job is the freedom I have once I leave the store, which is quite often. I can essentially sell myself to the customer at my own discretion, which usually results in better tips. I'm able to run my routes as I see fit, and make stops for sandwiches or run other quick errands if time allows. I also enjoy being able to help others with their jobs, as I am known as one who gets things done right, and I enjoy resolving customer complaints for some strange reason.
The worst part of the job are the slow periods and customers who don't tip! Another drawback is zero chance of advancement; drivers make minimum wage + tips and never get raises.
All things considered, delivering for Pizza Hut has been a wonderful experience, and I will miss it when I move on.
